Officer Edward Maloney was shot and killed as he attempted to arrest a robbery suspect.

When Officer Maloney attempted to arrest the suspect the two engaged in had-to-hand combat. During the fight the suspect drew a revolver and shot Officer Maloney in the back. The suspect then attempted to shoot a special officer as he escaped, but the officer knocked the gun from the suspect's hand and arrested him.

The man was convicted of Officer Maloney's murder and sentenced to life at San Quentin State Prison. An accomplice was sentenced to 10 years.

Officer Maloney had served with the San Francisco Police Department for six years. He was survived by his wife and 3-month-old baby.

Officer Maloney is my Great Great Uncle. I have a photo of Edward and all of his brothers in uniform on the S.F.P.D. around 1910. As far as I know I was the only member to join the police department in 1985 in Aurora, Colorado. I retired in 2001. From all accounts Edward was a dedicated police officer who gave is life in the service of his community San Francisco.
